Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

Building Integrated PV reinvents the idea of solar energy. Integrated solar is aesthetically appealing, financially profitable, and perfectly within the reach of the regular customer. It turns the cost of construction materials into a source of income so the roof or faade could have a payback period. BIPV opens a wide range of new business opportunities on the untapped markets of various applications.

BIPV – Building-integrated photovoltaics. The solar photovoltaic panel is integrated into the building fabric rather than a ‘tack-on’ addition and the PV panel replaces conventional building cladding materials but with the added

benefit of producing renewable electricity. The key advantage of Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) is the marginal

additional cost in installation. BIPV is one of the fastest growing segments of the photovoltaic industry.

BIPV also delivers further advantages. Its applicability to a wide range of applications, vertical and horizontal surfaces means a wider area can be employed to generate solar energy than just conventional roof tops. Further, by generating electricity at point of use means that transmission losses are reduced and no upgrade of the grid is required. BIPV glazing can also deliver added energy saving benefits in reduced heat loss and heat gain and as a non mechanical system requires little or no maintenance over its lifetime.


PV Glass lets natural light in. It also provides thermal

and sound insulation while filtering 99% of harmful UV

radiation, and up to 95% Infrared radiation.

High Reliability

Our BIPV Solar Modules perform exceptionally well under weak light and high temperature. This makes it

a leader in the BIPV industry for real life applications. Our BIPV modules will continue to generate electricity

even when competitive panels fail to perform. Our BIPV Modules are cost efficient since they

replace the conventional building materials such as glass facades and roofing with our Solar

Facade Integrated Modules and Roof Integrated Modules.The added advantage of labour combining

labour costs with the original construction adds to the customer’s cost savings. Moreover our BIPV modules

out perform old generation BIPV panels by a margin of 10-20% more efficiency adding to further long term

financial benefits.

  • Building Integrated Photovoltaic is a new type of building material, which
    provides green energy as well as building preservation.
  • Apart from generating electricity, BIPV modules also provide lower solar heat
    gain. They are available in different dimensions, thicknesses, shapes and
  • NANO BIPV solutions make it possible to make sustainable buildings and green building without compromising on your architectural ideas.
  • The result is the natural and yet impressive everyday integration of solar solutions in your design & architecture.

CIGS ePower faade logic

It is estimated that up to 40% of faade surfaces in Europe would satisfy solar suitability criteria. Given that, ePower faade targets the commercial BIPV markets and presents itself as a valid investment choice which brings a substantial rate of return. Moreover, the PV faade is not necessarily more expensive than traditional faade solutions and, with the current technology, it presents itself equally appealing. In the mid-term perspective, the BIPV faade is going to gain wide recognition withour companies products at the forefront of the trend.

CIGS ePower faade functionality and yields

The functionality of ePower faade does not differ from the traditional faade materials. It is durable, safe, tested,

and highly efficient. Our research and project experience tells that the vertical installation delivers even 75%

of output compared to the system designed under perfect tilt angle conditions. The faade mounting systems are

long-since present on the market which facilitates the choice of the right technology. ePower faade provides the

customers with a stunning final effect. The printed versions of the faade enable designers and architects to fully

personalize the projects.

The faade market is not standardized – architects keep their ideal form and design. Eterbright understands these conditions therefore we are open to provide a customized offer. The customized projects are treated individually to find the golden compromise between the PV and construction requirements. We kindly invite the potential partners to contact us directly to discuss new business ventures.

CIGS ePower tile logic

The ultimate idea of ePower Tiles is to replace the traditional roofing materials so both: the end-customer and installer could benefit. For the customer, the roof, instead of the cost, turns into an investment vehicle. Since it generates income, in the long-term, it is free of charge so it could be replaced more often without financial stress. For the installers, ePower tile opens new opportunities to operate on the promising markets of high-profit margins and scarce competition. What matters is know-how and innovative spirit to grasp the uncovered demand.

The manufacturer offers the product in two versions with a power output of 56 W each, as well as in a 26.5 W version with a smaller size.

A first 56 W tile, which the company describes as bender compatible, measures420 mm x1,280 mm x 38 mm and weighs 9.9 kg. It has an open-circuit voltage of 41.3 V and a short-circuit current of 1.89 A.

The second 56 W product, described by the manufacturer as Tejas Borja compatible, also weighs9.9 kgbut measures457 mm x1,268 mm x 39 mm. The values for the open-circuit voltage and short-circuit current are the same as the other 56 W tile.

The 26.5 W product has dimensions of457 mm x 653 mm x 39 mm and weighs 4.7 kg. Its open-circuit voltage is 39.7 V and its short-circuit current is 0.94 A.

All the tiles are claimed to withstand a snow load of 5,400 Pascal (Pa) and a wind load ranging from 1,600 Pa to 2,400 Pa. They are built with 3.2 mm tempered glass, an anodized aluminum alloy frame, and an IP68 enclosure. Theirtemperature coefficient is -0.34% per degree Celsius and their operational temperature ranges from -40 C to 85 C.

The product comes with a 10-year product warranty and a 25-year performance warranty.E TILE
